Hi, I'm Jessie Cheng!

I am a marketing and film student passionate about global entertainment and the intersection of artistry and mental health. My marketing experience has allowed me to work directly with indie artists and professionals in areas ranging from music supervision and campaign management to artist development and photoshoot coordination.

 

Beyond my professional work, I aim to increase awareness and promote mental health through creative storytelling. As a Chinese American woman, I want to advance a new, diverse narrative on mental health and in penning my debut novel, Unglamored, seek to spark conversations about eating disorders within Asian communities and the entertainment industry.

I can often be found making yet another Spotify playlist, reading a good book, or performing two a.m. solo concerts in front of my mirror.

What others are saying about Unglamored

“A natural story teller, Cheng uses her unique perspective to explore the differences between American and Chinese cultures and to vocalize the silent struggle we all endure to achieve mental well being. A must-read to understand the rising generation.”
